Illegal insider trading extracts significant costs. Trading material non-public information hampers trust and destroys market integrity. Yet, from time to time, stories of the tall and mighty following slippery criminal paths highlight the need to pay close attention. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has comprehensive laws against the trading of material non-public information. Investment professionals from the buy side, sell side, as well as corporations and other related stakeholders should be aware of common pitfalls and information boundaries that all professionals need to observe.

Mr. Suresh Gupta, a senior regulator from SEBI, has a ringside view of the regulatory landscape of insider trading. In this interactive session, Mr. Gupta will provide insights on the topic of insider trading. This webinar will include:

  • insider trading overview: intent and evolution
  • required standards of practice
  • common pitfalls
  • case studies

This is an archived version of a live webinar that took place on 21 December 2017.
